Day Visit questions

We will be taking a train into Stansstad, walking to the Fortress Furigen and then taking the train to Lucerne.

I googled Stansstad and I can't really tell where the train station is. Is it located next to what appears to be a highway, or large road?

Once we leave the station on foot, I understand there are signs leading us to the fortress - is this accurate? Will be be walking the street that parallells the water?

I was told it was a 15 minute walk - is this accurate?

Thanks much!!

Or skip Stansstad and Fürigen Fortress altogether and continue to Stans instead, leave your luggage here at the station and walk to the Stanserhorn funicular station and ascend the peak. This is the view you will get with Stansstad at the bridge and lake, Stans is a couple of kilometres to the right:
